1986 Topps – Ryan Lavarnway

Last season I saw Ryan have a great game against the Indianapolis Indians. Just the fact that he was a catcher was going to get him a couple of cards on this site, but the great game sealed the deal. Part of the fun of this site is seeing my favorite cards from my childhood with current players on them.  (more…)

1993 Donruss – Ozzie Guillen

This is kind of a weird card for me to make for two reasons. One of those is that Ozzie was in this set as a player. I usually don’t make cards like this, but I felt the need to make the card. The second reason is that Ozzie is no longer the manager of the Chicago White Sox. Ozzie came in and took the Sox to the next level. He won the World Series in just his second year at the helm of the team. He has never been able to re-create that success though, and that might be a partial reason as to why he was fired. As a Sox fan I am torn today. I realize that something had to happen. That being said I am excited to see how the Sox will go from here. Of course I am also sad to see the skipper go. (more…)


1986 Topps – Carlos Beltran

With all the rumors swirling around about Carlos Beltran I figured that I had better post this card quick while he is still a member of the Mets. I thought that it would be cool to make some cards of both the Mets and the Red Sox with the ’86 Topps template. This fall will be 25 years since that great World Series. I used some older pictures of players that were no longer on either team, but I did have a few pictures of current players. For the time being Carlos is still a Met. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Tracy Woodson

Tracy is the manager for the Valparaiso Crusaders. He is probably more noted though for his time with the Dodgers. He was part of that magical ’88 team that won the World Series. After spending some time managing in the minors he is now guiding the young men in Valpo. (more…)


1986 Topps – David Wright

Since it has been 25 years since the Mets won the World Series against the Red Sox I thought that it would be great to come up with a retro set for them. I started making these cards a while back, and hopefully will get them out as the season progresses. What better guy to have on the card than David Wright? (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Joe Girardi

I still remember when Joe came up with the Cubs. It really does not seem like that long ago, but it actually has been. Since then he has had a good career followed up by a good managing career. He was so good that the Yankees made them their manager, and he has already brought them a World Series title. (more…)
